The Basque country tactician had a midweek to forget and will hope to see thing pan out better for his new employers this weekend
Real Madrid start life in the Spanish Primera Division without Zinedine Zidane when they host Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday night.
Julien Lopetegui has taken over from the club legend Zidane but things didn’t go well for the former Spain manager after losing 4-2 to city rivals Atletico Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup on Wednesday.
He would certainly want to make an impression in his first league game for Spain’s most successful club with NairaBet offering odds of (1.22) for a comfortable victory.
El Geta gained promotion to the top-flight last term and did exceptionally well to finish in eighth place, just three points behind Sevilla for the final European qualification spot.
They failed to get a win against Los Blancos last season and are underdogs with the same betting firm at odds of (14.00).
A draw at the end of 90 minutes is offered at (7.00).
Real Madrid have won each of their last nine La Liga games against Getafe and have scored an astonishing 35 goals (an average of 3.8 goals per game).
Since they are the overwhelming favourites for victory here, it won’t be out of place to back that with four or more goals coming out of the Bernabeu at odds of (2.15) with NairaBet.
